The last time the Mets scored more than fourteen runs was June 27, 2008, when they poured fifteen on the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Carlos Delgado had nine RBI; the Yankees pitchers that day were Dan Giese, Edwar Ramirez, Ross Ohlendorf, and LaTroy Hawkins. Last night, the Mets scored fourteen in a thrashing of the Tigers, even though they didn't hit a single homer. Four different Mets had three hits or more: Ike Davis, Jose Reyes (whose average is up to .277), David Wright (.291), and Angel Pagan, who actually had four hits. The Mets gained a game on the Braves in the standings and held on to their wild-card lead. (Magic number: 93!) And Carlos Beltran's Minor League rehab assignment is officially starting Thursday. The Mets are starting to look awfully intriguing.
